How to Apply
All applications for the prosthodontics residency program must be submitted through the American Dental Education Association (ADEA) PASS program (Postdoctoral Application Support Service). ADEA PASS simplifies the application process by allowing you to complete one standardized application, rather than individual applications to each program. There is a fee for this service.

All residency applicants are also required to register with the National Matching Service. The Match is used by applicants and programs to determine the final placement of applicants into positions after the application and evaluation process is completed.
To be invited for an interview, applicants must be applying exclusively to programs participating in the Postdoctoral Dental Matching Program. We feel that residency program participation in the Postdoctoral Dental Matching Program is fair and beneficial to applicants. We would like to ask the candidates to indicate in writing that they will only apply to match programs.

Residency Benefits and Costs
Residents are appointed as Graduate Teaching Associates. This appointment provides a stipend of $12,853 during academic year 2020-21 (effective 8/16/20). In addition, half of the in-state and non-resident tuition will be waived. This support can be renewed annually (to a maximum of three years) depending on availability of funds and on positive teaching outcomes as reviewed annually by the program director. U.S. citizens may be eligible to apply for Ohio residency status after their fourth semester at Ohio State.
Residents must provide certain laboratory and clinical instrumentation. You will be given a list of specific items such as an intra-oral camera, one semi-adjustable articulator and other instruments. The approximate cost for all can vary. Also, it is highly recommended that you have your own laptop computer.
Additionally, attendance at some national meetings is desirable; travel and per diem costs are your responsibility. However, travel to the Annual American College of Prosthodontists and American Academy of Fixed Prosthodontics meeting is typically supported by the program if project research findings are presented.
The clinical component of the program includes all phases of prosthodontics:
- fixed prosthodontics
- implant prosthodontics
- complete denture prosthodontics
- maxillofacial prosthetics
- removable partial prosthodontics
Residents are appointed as part-time Graduate Teaching Associates. The teaching commitment is currently one/half to one day a week per semester.
Research leading to a thesis or a manuscript suitable for publication is required for the master's degree. Specific research time is made available to the resident to assist in the completion of the thesis research project.
